Clem & Louisa's Cape Town Cottage

House Call

Name: Clem & Louisa Barnes
Location: City Bowl — Cape Town, South Africa

Our house is over 100 years old and is a typical Victorian semi-detached City Bowl cottage. Clem is an architect and two years ago we undertook a major renovation. Heritage concerns required that the old character was retained for the street aspect — however, the addition is contemporary, personalized and belies its external look. The renovations also optimized our fabulous view of Table Mountain and sought to use every inch of the property.

Thanks Clem & Louisa!
